Review 2184: At Home in France, La Bouzonnie
4bed/4bath house near Le Bugue (Dordogne), Aquitaine
2004, one week
La Bouzonnie was in the country several miles from Le Bugue, in the Dordogne. We had gorgeous views of countryside from the house and pool. Very private. Great location for exploring this part of France. Many good restaurants, weekly markets, charming villages.
Had to drive into Le Bugue or St Alvere to get to bakery or restaurants. Nearest large grocery was also in Le Bugue about a 15 minute drive.
La Bouzonnie is a wonderful old stone farmhouse that was renovated (bathrooms totally redone) recently. Downstairs was large kitchen with dining area, living room and game room. Bedrooms were upstairs in two different wings of the house, very spacious.
Spectacular outdoor area, large dining table in grassy area with steps leading down to the large pool surrounded by lavender. It was very private and lovely. Enjoyed many leisurely meals outside and fabulous starry nights.
Very nice furniture; rooms were comfortable and clean. Plenty of room for six of us. A washer and dryer were an added bonus.
Four nice bedrooms and three bathrooms, worked great for six women friends.
Kitchen was well equipped. We cooked several meals and found everything we needed.
Problems or Bonuses
Loved this place! Was a bit of a trip to get to restaurants for dinner, but we enjoyed the privacy, the quiet and the fantastic views.
Agency and Representatives (and price)
The agency treated us very well. We booked through At Home In France, a US based company. They worked with Simply Perigord, based in Le Bugue. Simply Perigord, a British owned company were very helpful, especially in aiding us in our quest for lost luggage.
Do you recommend this vacation rental to others?
Definitely. I've already recommended to several friends. It was the perfect setting for my 50th birthday celebration.
Things to do in this area
The Dordogne is beautful and not as filled with tourists as Provence. Many beautiful villages to visit, prehistoric caves, markets etc. Wineries are within an easy drive. We could have spent a second week and still had plenty to explore. Wonderful restaurants, scenery, canoeing on the Dordogne, a great vacation.
